MarkupTwitterFeed - where do I get the feed?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have just installed the MarkupTwitterFeed module, but for some reason I cannot find the right feed.

I have created a Twitter app and maybe it is because I am doing it wrong in the process of doing that.

Would anyone mind guiding me in the right direction to getting the right feed?

By the way, the link to the Twitter application page is leading to a 404 github page here https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/MarkupTwitterFeed

Thanks

Vayu

Is it possible to use this module to render multiple feeds from different timelines now that you have to provide a consumer tokens etc? I was using the old version to render two twitter timelines to a page.

Hi Soma. Yes, I saw that yesterday and downloaded it right away.  But what is the feed that I enter into the $t = $modules->get('What-goes-here');  Can I see a working example?

It was updated 4 hours ago...

Yes there's a readme with examples...

OK so bit of a hack but heres how i got 2 timelines within PW. Maybe in the future the twitter module could include multiple users...?

1) Created one instance using the twitter module:

- implemented the latest version of the twitter module - on github

- created an app on twitter using the user of the timeline i wanted to show (in this case Virgin) dev.twitter.com

- for some reason it didnt authenticate straight away so I signed into twitter.com and went to app settings and found my new app at the top with read-only permissions.

- went back to my app on dev.twitter.com and add my new keys.

2) Duplicated the twitter module

- changed the name of the module folder to MarkupTwitterFeed2, the file MarkupTwitterFeed2.module and the class within to MarkupTwitterFeed2 (instead of MarkupTwitterFeed)

- uploaded to modules folder and installed like normal in PW

3) rendering

- I created a new template duplicating my first twitter template (which i happened to do as if it was a widget on the page and thus could be used by any page)

- <? php $t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed2');

and TADA! you've got two timelines...

e.g. http://www.virgintribesa.com/

Hi Arjen and Soma.

Thanks for helping.  I am running the latest version and have been for the last day or so.  I realize that Ryan has made a couple of changes today, but I am running version 2.0 and have been ever since I posted this first post. :-)  I have now updated it again from github, just like I did last night.

I have just found out what I was missing.  I had not seen that I could enter the Twitter app settings via the module settings: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s3/sh/20c34a3b-47fa-45da-b303-3dbea2adddb4/62e355680244c10271847a66dc91b753.  It all makes sense now.

One other thing I might like to ask is how to set a locale.

I tried this:

setlocale(LC_TIME, "da_DK");
$t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed');


But it won't work.  Any ideas? My site can be seen here: http://vrweb.dk/

I'm glad vayu solved his problem but I can't solve mine. I have updated the module, created a twitter app and retrieved the consumer key & secret and access token & secret, entered them into the module settings but still get "Error retrieving Twitter status".

Is there some extra step when creating the app? Their documentation is horrible.

It seems for the module to work all I should need is the oauth settings and any other info in the app is arbitrary (i.e needed for the app but not for the module. What am I missing?

EDIT:

I've got a new error message:

Error    Call to undefined function wireRmdir() (line 195 of /home/checkere/www/www/site/modules/MarkupTwitterFeed/MarkupTwitterFeed.module)

Maybe I should see about using the embedded feed for now.

@vayu, you might want to use strftime since that will respect your locale. So you might want to convert it. Can't really tell if that's best practice but it might work.

@digitex, I made a mistake updating my code partially. Make sure you use:

$t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed'); 

instead of:

$t = new MarkupTwitterFeed;

That worked for me.

Hey Arjen.

That's where the different errors came from. Originally I had:

$t = new MarkupTwitterFeed;

Which returned "Error retrieving Twitter status" which at least proved the module was installed and working.

I switched to:

$t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed');

which is when I got "Error    Call to undefined function wireRmdir() (line 195 of

/home/checkere/www/www/site/modules/MarkupTwitterFeed/MarkupTwitterFeed.module)"

I then abandoned the module for Twitteroauth and used:

<?php
session_start();
require_once("twitteroauth/twitteroauth/twitteroauth.php"); //Path to twitteroauth library
 
$twitteruser = "digitex";
$notweets = 3;
$consumerkey = "1234345667";
$consumersecret = "244556667";
$accesstoken = "23456676788";
$accesstokensecret = "2345667889";
 
function getConnectionWithAccessToken($cons_key, $cons_secret, $oauth_token, $oauth_token_secret) {
  $connection = new TwitterOAuth($cons_key, $cons_secret, $oauth_token, $oauth_token_secret);
  return $connection;
}
 
$connection = getConnectionWithAccessToken($consumerkey, $consumersecret, $accesstoken, $accesstokensecret);
 
$tweets = $connection->get("https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=".$twitteruser."&count=".$notweets);
 
echo json_encode($tweets);
?>

Which worked and loaded the feed but not in a very presentational way. I'm convinced now the twitter app I created is correct but the implementation with or of the module is not. I'm not suggesting the module doesn't work since it obviously does for others, just that something is set up wrong for me.

Last report before I give up on this S---.

I went ahead and updated the module on a different site, different server, same version of PHP but different host and it worked like a charm. So, now I'm a little closer to figuring it out.

The problem site has another issue. I tried to uninstall the MarkupTwitterFeed module and got a new error. It won't uninstall. I might try going in through PHPMyAdmin and doing it that way and then see if I can start over with it.

@arjen,thanks for the tip, but it looks like strftime is used in the code of the module.  Furthermore, it looks like the only thing regarding the date, that can be changed via the parameters is the date format.  I don't see any way to hook into the code to change the date output.

I went to update to v2 today and noticed that it is not showing up in the modules manager. Thought I'd uninstall and see if that helped, but got this error:

DirectoryIterator::__construct(/xxx/site/assets/cache/MarkupTwitterFeed/): failed to open dir: No such file or directory

The directory doesn't exist - not sure why. Anyway, manual upgrade seems to be fine.

Another thing - the link from the Github page:

"To obtain these, create a new Twitter application at: https://dev.twitter.com/apps."

is broken!

I'm having the same issue with the module error and havent been able to get the new module working with Ryan's Blog template yet :(

Just to clarify - I am not having any problems with the new version of the module working at all. My comments were strictly related to upgrading and the link on the GitHub page. 

Can you provide anymore info on why the new module isn't working for. No output, errors, what?

I was getting errors initially because I was using:

$t = new MarkupTwitterFeed();

but switching to:

$t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed'); 
 

fixed everything.

Does that help?

looks like u. right. Not workin wit ver 2.2.9 :lol:

That may have just saved me a wack of trouble. Didn't realize it was 2.3 compatible only. Thanks Willy.

Edit June 18: upgraded PW to 2.3 and twitter feed is up again. Note to self: read compatibility before spending 5 hours troubleshooting.

Hi guys,

Having problems with this module. Using PW 2.3 and the latest version of this Module. 

I've put in all the information required in the module admin page and double checked that the information is correct, but no matter what I try, I keep getting 

"Error retrieving Twitter status" 

With nothing being logged to the errors.txt log file.

Any ideas what it could be? I'm running PHP 5.4 on Debian 7.

      PageMjmlToHtml
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/PageMjmlToHtml
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/page-mjml-to-html/
      A module allowing you to write your Processwire template using MJML and get a converted HTML output using MJML API.
      This is considered to be in alpha and as such needs some testing before being used in production!

      About
      Created by Mailjet, MJML is a markup language making it a breeze to create newsletters displayed consistently across all email clients.
      Write your template using MJML combined with Processwire’s API and this module will automatically convert your code into a working newsletter thanks to their free-to-use Rest API.
      Prerequisite
      For this module to work you will need to get an API key and paste it in the module’s configuration.
      Usage
      Once your credentials are validated, select the template(s) in which you’re using the MJML syntax, save and go visualize your page(s) to see if everything’s good. You will either get error/warning messages or your email properly formatted and ready-to-go.
      From there you can copy/paste the raw generated code in an external mailing service or distribute your newsletter using ProMailer.
      Features
      The MJML output is cached to avoid repetitive API calls Not cached if there are errors/warnings Cleared if the page is saved Cleared if the template file has been modified A simple (dumb?) code viewer highlights lines with errors/warnings A button is added to quickly copy the raw code of the generated newsletter Not added if the page is rendered outside of a PageView Only visible to users with the page’s edit permission A shortcut is also added under “View” in the edit page to open the raw code in a new tab Multi-languages support
      Notes
      The code viewer is only shown to superusers. If there’s an error the page will display:
      Only its title for guests Its title and a message inviting to contact the administrator for editors If you are using the markup regions output strategy, it might be best to not append files to preserve your MJML markup before calling the MJML API. This option is available in the module’s settings.

      Hi guys!
      I'm a bit anxious because this is the first module I present! (beta modulo) But I will finally be able to share something with the community too! :)
      This is a BETA version of the PayPal payment system called: PayPal Commerce Platform.
      It is an advanced system (Business Pro account is needed) that brings various benefits in terms of fees and above all integrates direct payment with credit/debit cards. 
      The module integrates with Padloper 0.0.2, which is the current installation I'm using.
      This system integrates the classic PayPal buy button, the alternative or local payment method and the new payment system: credit/debit cards that doesn't go through the PayPal account. It is a Stripe-style payment, it connects directly with the bank and integrates 3D security validation.
      I say that it is a BETA because this module currently only works with Sandbox account, to put it live you need to change API url manually (manually for the moment).
      Because this module is not ready for live:
      I would like to have your opinion on how I built the module (is the first one I do). I don't want to share something that is not fish but I need a comparison with someone more experienced than me, for be sure that this is the best way to code the module.
      If you want to try this I created a git, you will find all the instructions for installation and correct operation. (Git has a MIT licensed)
      https://github.com/MarcooRo/processwire-PayPal-Commerce-Platform I hope I did something that you guys can like :)

      FieldtypeQRCode
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      A simple fieldtype generating a QR Code from the public URL of the page, and more.
      Using the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase.

      Options
      In the field’s Details tab you can change between .gif or .svg formats. If you select .svg you will have the option to directly output the markup instead of a base64 image. SVG is the default.
      You can also change what is used to generate the QR code and even have several sources. The accepted sources (separated by a comma) are: httpUrl, editUrl, or the name of any text/URL/file/image field.
      If LanguageSupport is installed the compatible sources (httpUrl, text field, ...) will return as many QR codes as there are languages. Note however that when outputting on the front-end, only the languages visible to the user will be generated.
      Formatting
      Unformatted value
      When using $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field") it returns an array with the following structure:
      [ [ "label" => string, // label used in the admin "qr" => string, // the qrcode image "source" => string, // the source, as defined in the configuration "text" => string // and the text used to generate the qrcode ], ... ] Formatted value
      The formatted value is an <img>/<svg> (or several right next to each other). There is no other markup.
      Should you need the same markup as in the admin you could use:
      $field = $fields->get("qrcode_field"); $field->type->markupValue($page, $field, $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field")); But it’s a bit cumbersome, plus you need to import the FieldtypeQRCode's css/js. Best is to make your own markup using the unformatted value.
      Static QR code generator
      You can call FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCode to generate any QR code you want. Its arguments are:
      string $text bool $svg Generate the QR code as svg instead of gif ? (default=true) bool $markup If svg, output its markup instead of a base64 ? (default=false) Hooks
      Please have a look at the source code for more details about the hookable functions.
      Examples
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $page = $event->arguments("page"); $event->return = $page->title; // or could be: $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCodes", function($event) { $qrcodes = $event->return; // keep everything except the QR codes generated from editUrl foreach($qrcodes as $key => &$qrcode) { if($qrcode["source"] === "editUrl") { unset($qrcodes[$key]); } } unset($qrcode); $event->return = $qrcodes; })

      AppApiFile adds the /file endpoint to the AppApi routes definition. Makes it possible to query files via the api. 
      This module relies on the base module AppApi, which must be installed before AppApiFile can do its work.
      Features
      You can access all files that are uploaded at any ProcessWire page. Call api/file/route/in/pagetree?file=test.jpg to access a page via its route in the page tree. Alternatively you can call api/file/4242?file=test.jpg (e.g.,) to access a page by its id. The module will make sure that the page is accessible by the active user.
      The GET-param "file" defines the basename of the file which you want to get.
      The following GET-params (optional) can be used to manipulate an image:
      width height maxwidth maxheight cropX cropY Use GET-Param format=base64 to receive the file in base64 format.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.
